Fantastic! My dog looks better than he ever has and they took a genuine interest in his health and well being. Facilities nice and clean. Stuart and Bonnie are terrific people! Thanks guys! And, they really helped me Bruno's skin irritation by using an organic, all natural bath totally gratis! My Shih Tzu-Poodle mix's sensitive skin is so difficult to handle that finding the right shampoo definitely deserves kudos. HUGE BONUS! PROs: Friendly, Knowledgeable, Experienced, Caring, Engaging Staff Accomodating Great reminder/follow up service re: your dog or cat Clean and Tidy Work Space Wide Range of Services including emergency de-skunking Very Competitively Priced Lots of Perks CONs: One residential location...BUT they have a pick up service which is free within a certain radius of the business. I believe it is 10 miles. A fee applies after that. And there is plenty to do nearby if you plan to wait. --Jim T.

Although, she has not had to catsit for us, we have spoken on the phone several times, and have actually gotten to know her during several long telephone conversations. We get along great, and we a shared cat care philosophy. My husband I are frequently out of the country, and we need a professional to check on our cats everyday, along with our house sitter and friend who come by to pet and play. We are going to meet in person next week and hire her to cat sit for us for almost 3 weeks in early 2017. We plan to use Kisses Happen from now on!

Nicole walked my dogs for about 2 years and would still be my go to dog walker if I hadn't moved. Nicole is very professional and responsive. I had no doubt that my dogs were in good hands with her. Having her come by during the day to walk the dogs gave me piece of mind when I wasn't able to get home to give them some love. Her updates always assured me that my dogs had received the attention and care they needed. I highly recommend Jolly Paws Pet Care!

Charlene (Hotsy) did an amazing job caring for our two large dogs and cat! She also did a great job house sitting and helping with small tasks (watering plants, bringing in the mail, taking out the trash). She sent pics of my fur babies and I know they loved being at home during our 11 day vacation rather than a kennel. I would highly recommend Hotsy!

Tracy took care of our 4 cats and 2 dogs while we were out of town. She took extra time with the fur babies during her visits to make them happy. Every day she sent a text and picture or video to us to let us know how they were doing. I think our fur babies really miss her now that we're back home! I highly recommend Tracy for your pet sitting needs.

Anna was wonderful in every aspect. She was great with all three of my pets - parrot, cat and dog. She was accomodating and visited an extra time just because she was in the area! I feel confident that I am able to leave them in her care whenever I need to go out of town.

She watched our 4 crazy dogs while we were away on vacation and was amazing. She regularly sent me updates on the dogs as well as pictures. She came to our house multiple times throughout the day and let out our dogs, played ball with them, cuddled them, pet them, fed them, made sure water bowls were filled, etc. She left us a note for when we returned home talking about how each dog did individually.. you could really see the connection she had formed with them! Not only did she take care of our dogs but she also collected our mail, tidied our home (washed windows dirtied by dog noses, took out garbage, etc). She is VERY reasonably priced and one of the nicest people I have ever met! We are so thankful she treated our dogs and our house like it was her own.

    About

    I'm Hailey West. I am looking for a part-time job. I love animals and have four dogs and one cat. I am attending school to become a vet tech. I have also volunteered at animal clinics. I am looking for sitting or walking jobs with dogs or cats.

    About

    We all have situations where we have to be away from home; whether it's vacations, over-night events, family functions out of town, sports events, etc. I have multiple clients that refer back to me each time they are experiencing these life events and need help with their Furry Family members or just being at their home while they're away for security purposes. I can help you! I have slots available for new home clients and new Furry friends! I have many years of experience with the average pets (Dogs, Cats, Fish, etc.) but I also have experience caring for livestock, equine, poultry and goats. If you've got it, I've probably taken care of it. Feel free to contact, if you have questions about services I offer! References are available!

    About

    I am a pet sitter that has experience working with just about any pet. I pet sit dogs, cats, horses, chickens, goats, etc. I have worked with veterinary doctors as a veterinary assistant/kennel technician for 5 years and at a dog daycare and boarding place for 4 years. I do board pets at my house but prefer to come to yours because it keeps them in their comfort zone for most. I also give baths, nail trims, ear cleanings, and express anal glands while I am pet sitting. I can come to your house for just that as well. I however do not do any shaving. The only shaving I do is sanitary shaves!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is included in a dog grooming?

    Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

    Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

    What does a dog walker do?

    We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

    • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
    • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
    • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
    • What are your different walk routes?
    • When will you pick up and drop off?
    • How will we communicate?
    • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
    • What’s your cancellation policy?
    • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
    • How and how often do I pay you?
    • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

    What is a dog groomer?

    A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

    What is a dog groomer?

    Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

    A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

    What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

    It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

    • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
    • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
    • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
    • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
    • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
    • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
